Download PDF for this date

President Ramirez of Argentina recently gave a two-hour audience to Dr. Moises Goldman, the president of the DAIA, central Jewish body which represents all Argentine Jews, during which the Jewish leader appealed for active government measures against the unchecked anti-Jewish propaganda in the country, it was learned here today.

Dr. Goldman will also be received next week by the Argentine Minister of Interior in connection with the efforts of the DAIA to impress upon the government the necessary of curbing the intensified agitation against the Jews which is being conducted by organs supporting the Ramirez regime and which has led to anti-Jewish outrages in various sections of the country.

Especially hard hit by anti-Jewish developments are the Jews in the provinces in Entre Rios, Salto, Tucuman and Santiago del Estero where the provincial administrators embarked on a definite anti-Semitic policy. In Buenos Aires the anti-Jewish propaganda is carried on chiefly by extreme nationalist – groups. A number of memorandums drawing the attention of the government to the violent anti-Jewish measures in various Argentine provinces were submitted by the DAIA to the Minister of Interior, but despite promises by the authorities to curb these activities, nothing has been done as yet in this direction.
